CHC provides a unique opportunity for exposure to NCAA college coaches.
While our camp is a “showcase” opportunity, they differ considerably from the opportunities at showcase tournaments:
- Coaches seek prospects with not only sport-specific talent, but those with character and a strong work ethic as well. Best able to understand all of these qualities when they are working daily in practices and games with you, our coaches tell us they appreciate the opportunity to work with players over a period of a few days.
- Every player has significant practice and game time with NCAA coaches
- It’s important to expand your opportunities in front of a coach beyond the time he or she may see you in a single game.
- While the very top prospects each year are generally well known and frequently sought after by multiple programs, the vast majority of NCAA recruited athletes come from a large group of talented, but previoulsy unknown players. Players from this group ultimately comes down to who has the best opportunities for exposure.**
We think athletes have a better chance of achieving their goals if they understand the recruiting process and how to help themselves in this process. Daily seminars with coaches explain:
- the college recruiting and application process
- NCAA clearinghouse and regulations
- Financial aid and scholarships
- What you can do to improve your chances of achieving your goals
- What college coaches look for in players
We care that each player has the proper support to do his or her best:
- We provide Gatorade and healthy snacks everyday
- Rosters are kept small- both game and practice playing time is maximized
- More ice time each day than other camps or showcases
- Full- time trainers and equipment managers are on hand at the rink for the entire showcase
